Dear Friend

I Am So Lucky Sharing People are Trying to Contact Me

I am about to be rich. Wealthy beyond what I expected, and it is frankly a complete surprise to me that this opportunity has come my way. Who would have thought that a tidal wave disaster would eventually benefit me? Here is the source of my upcoming wealth, and I am sure that you will see why I am so confident that this will work:

Dear Friend,

There is no way for me to know whether you will be properly understood, but it is my duty to write and reach out to you, TRUSTING that you will give this proposal a positive consideration.

May almighty God be with you. I got your contact through my search in the internet of your country housing registration chamber and Please, keep this proposal to yourself alone. I am from Hong Kong . I speak Chinese, Cantonese and English languages. I have a special Language Translation machine which i am using to translate my message to German language and this is because of the privacy/urgent of this proposal.

I am Mr He Guangbei and I am 55years old and happily married with grown-up children, and i am the Vice Chairman
and Chief Executive of Bank of China Hong Kong in charge of the International Treasury Department. I will need you to assist me in executing a business project from our bank worth US$30.5 Million. These funds were deposited with our bank by a customer of our bank who is a national {citizen} of your country, who unfortunately died in the December 2004 in Asia Tsunami disaster.

For more on this natural disaster click on these links:-


The deceased account has been declared dormant since 2005 and these funds will be confiscated/declared unserviceable and turned over to the Hong Kong government if the deceased business associates or next-of-kin did not claim this money; since all efforts to trace any living relative of the deceased proved abortive, i have decided that i will have you claim this money as the deceased business associate/or next-of-kin, since you are from the same country and perhaps have some similarities in certain areas. Everything concerning this transaction shall be LEGALLY done without hitch, as i was the deceased account Officer and all the relevant documents of this deposit were kept under my care.

Please endeavour to observe utmost discretion in all matters concerning this issue, as i hope that you are a sincere, honest and matured person and above all TRUSTWORTHY. Once the funds have been successfully transferred into your account, we shall share it in a ratio of 35% for you, 55% for me and my associates in the bank and the reminder 10% will be use as part of our obligation to support Charity Organization in any country of your choice. You are going to carried out this mission which I proposed to make sure that the money gets to the Charity Organization. It is important to let you know that we always support Charitable Organization and it is a personal affair.

I will prefer you reach me on my private email address below: ( dumbshit@something.com ) and finally after that I shall furnish you with more information about this operation. I am counting on your anticipated co-operation for a successful and hitch free business transaction between us, which will be mutually beneficial to both of us, for a start oblige me these information below:-

Your earliest response to this letter will be highly appreciated.

Kind regards,
Mr He Guangbei (Vice Chairman and Chief Executive Director)
Bank of China ( Hong Kong ) Limited

I am not quite following the whole translating to German with a machine part. This came to me in English and the syntax doesn’t seem like a machine translation from Chinese to German to English. It seems more like a poor writing, but that is why I think the writer is sincerely trying to enlist my help.

Also, what scammer would appeal to my sense of charity? It does concern me that He Guangbei didn’t spend the few minutes necessary to edit and clean up what appears to be a template letter. Perhaps s/he could have replaced “letter/email” with e-mail, and perhaps could have substituted the salutation “Dear Friend” with “Dear Frank.” The bracketed {citizen} could perhaps have been replaced with the actual name of my country, but I am going to accept that since He Guangbei is being secretive about this, S/he didn’t want to take the chance on revealing my identity.

So, to all of my friends: When all of this transaction is complete, who wants a pony?
